The lab serves as an incubator site for ideas, a public policy staging area, a catalyst and convener for technology commercialization, a place of continuity for startups, and other functions supportive of new ideas and innovation in support of the core mission of the Point. Currently, the lab is housed in the Thomas S. Monson Center in downtown Salt Lake City. Eventually, it will establish a presence at The Point.
